Who inspires me?
My parents, my partner, Ben Drew (plan B) and Jonas Salk.
-My parents inspire me because they have sacrificed so much for me through my life. My mother was subject to a vile human being, who would not even constitute as a sperm donor, but was a mere fertiliser to a seed. She was mistreated through the educational system, diagnosed with epilepsy, which back then, was perceived as a mental disorder, and as such, was deprived of an education, a right to free thinking and most importantly, deprived of encouragement and kind heartiness. My mother has battled through so much, spending many years working 3 jobs, cleaning, to keep my and my sister safe, put food on the table, and eat only the scraps that were left behind. She gradually over time created her own self-worth, her own financial stability and most importantly, the demand and diplomacy in being respected. She gave up her life to care for my grand parents, and watched them gradually die through illness. She did this with my FATHER, technically speaking my ‘Step-dad’, but a man who met my mother when i was three years old, and from that day he has never left us, always put himself last, and me, my sister and my mother first. He took on a lot of complexities, and dedicated himself to his new found family, as well as his. Combined, both my parents have always told me of the great things I have achieved; the great things I will achieve; but most importantly, they have given up their lives FOR ME. Now is the time I do the same back, now is the time I project their behaviours that have led to selfless actions to benefit me and my sister in exponential proportions.
My dear partner, of 6 years - Boooooy do I love this girl so much guys!!! She saved me! She saved me from an abyss that I put myself in through stupid actions, but one that should never of existed but did due to my negligent choices disregarding the framework my parents created. She is my daily motivator (just two days ago she went out and purchased a white board, thought board, pens and paper, to encourage this journey I am on). She watches the videos, forecasts, technical analysis, self-motivational videos with such a big smile on her face. She lost her beautiful dear Mother to Cancer when she was 14. I hate that I can not take her pain away, but I have been set on a path to care for her, love her, nurture her and create a family with her, as sent from her Mother, so i can not NOT, AND WILL NOT ACCEPT FAILure! I might FAIL, but I will not allow the -ure, FAILure, to be a part of the plan. 9,000 failures for 1 success!
Ben Drew - Plan B - Music Artist. To keep it short; he used his wealth and exposure to benefit deprived and impoverished children and adults from poor socioeconomic status by raising awareness, challenging the system, and telling everyone that WE ARE BEAUTIFUL AND CAPABLE OF SO MUCH!
Jonas Salk - Discovered a vaccine for POLIO, and priced it at an astonishing value of £0.00, with no patent, but ownership to the PEOPLE. Come on guys, this man gave away years of dedication and heart ache to not gain once single bit of money, but guess what he gained, GLOBAL recognition that surpasses any value of money, through selfless actions and giving ownership to US.
WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THEM?
It is simple, and consolidate in three words:
Through selfless actions.
